The VisionRGB-E2S DVI/RGB/HD Video Capture Card from DATAPATH is a stand-alone PCI Express x4 plug-in video capture card, with two complete capture channels supporting up to 1920x1200 DVI or 2048x1536 Analog resolution, and a 650MB/s transfer bus bandwidth. The card captures the Analog/ DVI data and triple buffers it into on-board storage. This data is then copied using DMA to the host system for display, storage or streaming. When a Datapath graphics card is used, the VisionRGB-E2S transfers the data directly to the graphics card, thereby increasing performance. The VisionRGB-E2S sends the relevant portions of each captured image to each display channel and instructs each channel to use its graphics engine to render the data. This fully utilizes the hardware and increases performance.

When the RGB/DVI data is displayed on a non Datapath graphics card, the VisionRGB-E2S sends the data to system memory or direct to the graphics card, dependent on the software used for display.

The VisionRGB-E2S video capture card is supplied with a software application for configuring the timing and format of the input sources and displaying the data. Simply connect your external DVI or Analog source into the card, run the VisionRGB-E2S application to automatically detect the video source format and display the captured video in a window on your desktop.

The VisionRGB-E2S is a suitable solution for applications that require the capture of analog or DVI sources in real time, such as viewing Analog or DVI sources from PCs, MACs, industrial/medical equipment, cameras and other video equipment, streaming video applications, and video wall controllers. For streaming applications, the VisionRGB-E2S can be used with Windows Media Encoder to compress and stream captures video. To replay the video, use Windows Media Player. Any application compatible with Windows Direct-Show technology can use the VisionRGB-E2S video capture card due to its built in WDM support.

High performance DMA to system memory or direct to graphics memory with scatter gather
Data capture at a maximum rate of 340MHz
HD capture for each channel up to 1080p at 60 frames per second, HDMI capture up to 1080p, and DVI up to 1920 x 1200
Dynamic input source selection
Administrator mode
Update indicator
On board processor for real time mode and sync detection
Support for separate H/V sync, Composite sync, or Sync on Green
When used with the Datapath range of graphics card, CPU load is negligible even if the image is being upscaled to a video wall, resulting in real time performance
